Paula, Munich, 2pm - 3:30pm

3,5 weeks after my foot surgery and still in my protective shoe we went to Gruenwald, a small place just outside Munich, on the high bank of the river Isar and nowadays best known for the Bavaria Film Studios (Europe's largest and most famous movie production studios) and being one of the most wealthiest community in Germany.

On top a castle of the former ruling house of Wittelsbach can be found.

Well, castle is a bit posh of a name for this 500 year old custom house of the Wittelsbach. Being situated high above the river and surround by lush trees, it certainly called for a walk.

The attached restaurant is famous for its dishes of game as well as for its prices ;-))

The walk soothed my overworked mind. My heart openend to the songs of the birds, the light green of Spring made me feel fresh and alive.

Most of the forest is protected and pristine. Gnarled roots remind me often on a trees trouble in gaining ground and strength.
As per next week I am allowed to do exercises again. Yet not being twenty anymore means I will have to do lots of exercises ;-))
However with this beautiful Spring and sunshine it is calling for exercises anyway, doesnt it?

Hope all of you are having a brilliant start into the week.

Sorry to hear you have had a foot problem. That is so frustrating when you like walking. I'm glad the sprin greenery cheered you a little. I have to do exercises too for a prolapsed disc in my spine.
